What Set’s R&R Property Apart from the Pack???
I am passionate about real estate, particularly real estate within our gorgeous region and have, over many years delighted in the growth and sustainability of wonderful local towns and communities. I believe that with sixteen years in the real estate industry and with my knowledge of the area, these factors greatly assist vendors and buyers alike and it’s a very clear point of difference. I am also an independent Agent who, ten years ago, purchased and transformed a struggling Stroud agency. Over the past decade I’ve witnessed a change in property trends as large farms and parcels of agricultural land have given way to residential estates. The tradition of a ‘home for life’ has reduced as people move more frequently for employment and lifestyle opportunities. This means new people, often those leaving the hustle and bustle of the city for a quieter life, enter and enrich our communities. It also means a growth in the real estate industry. As a result, I’ve been able to transform R and R Property from a tiny one-town agency into a regional market leader.
The brand identity, growth and success that has come from 10 years of hard work led to such increased demand from surrounding areas, particularly the mid-north coast and Port Stephens regions, that I decided to open a second office, in Bulahdelah. Initially a start-up office, I soon purchased a competitor’s real estate agency, of some twenty years standing that was now struggling under the weight of a rapidly changing market. That agency was then absorbed into the new office and the Bulahdelah office was soon achieving exceptional sales and rental results and continues to thrive in a dynamic market, bursting with tourism potential.
Initially an all-female team of offices, the business now has a mix of male and female team members, as well as numerous dedicated contractors. I am fortunate to have a great team of sales and property management personnel at each of my offices, as well as reliable and committed tradespeople to turn to when needed. However, as the Licensee and Managing Director of R&R Property, the buck stops with me. I take this responsibility very seriously and therefore remain a hands-on Agent, overseeing all aspects of the business from our sales and marketing strategies to daily operations.
My passion and commitment to real estate is matched by my passion and commitment to supporting my local communities whether it be by financial donations to local schools, sporting or special interest groups, volunteering at community events, or our annual Giving Tree. As a local business leader, I relish the opportunity to be an active community member both through the Agency and as a private citizen. I just love matching people with properties and as I guide R and R Property through the ever-changing real estate landscape, I’m excited about the future for my business – and our beautiful region.
